B-GOOD is featured in the "Maandblad van de Vlaamse Imkersbond" Magazine
The B-GOOD project was recently featured in the Flemish beekeepers magazine "Maandblad van de Vlaamse Imkersbond" focused solely on the interests of those involved in professional beekeeping. B-GOOD’s story was featured in the magazine’s April 2022 edition (108 volume, no.3).
In the report titled "First B-GOOD reviewing period (Part 1)", B-GOOD’s project coordinator Prof. Dirk de Graaf of Ghent University showcases the progress made by B-GOOD in the first half of its lifetime.
The article features an overview of:
- The definition of a ‘bee health’ and ‘healthy bee colonies’
- B-GOOD’s goals
- B-GOOD’s research developments and outcomes
- B-GOOD technologies

Next month, in the second part of the report, Prof. de Graaf will talk about the innovative "tools" developed in the B-GOOD project, the dynamic landscape models and the socio-economic component of the project.
